We are thrilled to introduce the latest technology into our clinic
What is an Optomap Image?
This device is used to image the retina (the layer lining the back of the eye) and captures a detailed 200° degree image, whereas traditional methods only encapsulate 45°.
Getting an Optomap image is fast, painless, and comfortable. It is suitable for individuals of all ages, even children. Also, under certain circumstances, dilation drops may not be necessary, but that is completely up to your eye care practitioner.
The retina is the only place in the body where blood vessels can be seen directly. This means that in addition to eye conditions, signs of other diseases (for example, stroke, heart disease, hypertension and diabetes) can also be seen in the retina, often without any symptoms. These are only a few reasons why an Optomap is beneficial.
